We’re always on the hunt for the ideal water shoe, and finding one that checks all the boxes is pretty tough. Ideally they work equally well on the boat, with good traction, enough lateral support, and non-marking soles. But they also need to work for a swim from the dinghy and a climb among the rocky shores, requiring adequate water drainage. And just to make it a little more challenging, it’s a bonus if they’re not so ugly that you can’t wear them in to a dockside restaurant without diminishing your self-esteem.
These Loyak Water Shoes from Astral hit all the right notes. Available in 5 different colorways, they’re constructed of breathable and quick drying Cordura, with G-14 rubber soles designed specifically for traction when wet. They offer proper drainage holes in the heel to facilitate quick drying comfort.
Available for $90.00.
